hello! my name is rachel…

HELLO! MY NAME IS RACHEL GILES.

I am currently a student at the University of Mary Washington. I graduated from Woodbridge Senior High School in 2016. I received my Associates in Social Science with a specialization in Political Science from Northern Virginia Community College in 2017. I will graduate from UMW in 2020. 

I have worked for four years for the Comfort Keepers, a business that provides in-home care to adults and seniors. When I started in 2016, I worked as a file clerk, and spearheaded a process of digitization of files. From there, my role has expanded to include social media, surveys, newsletters, and other communication and marketing projects.

I have volunteered for two local political campaigns, and have experience door to door canvassing, creating content for social media, and distributing literature at polling locations. 

In my free time, I am a serious bibliophile, and I intend to read 100 books in 2020! If you have or need book recommendations you can find me on Instagram and Goodreads. I am also a little bit of a pop culture fanatic, and know way too much movie trivia. I play the piano and ukulele. I also love to write!
